15 years until we reach a mini ice age

Christmas Gift Ideas often come from this magazine. Buy a winter coat to prepare for the looming frigid air.

Science.org

Scientists have predicted that Earth is 15 years away from a "mini ice age," The Telegraph reports. Using a new model of the sun's activity, the solar researchers estimate that in the 2030s the movements of two waves of fluids within the star will lead to a 60% reduction in solar activity. The subsequent decline in Northern Hemisphere temperatures would be similar to the freezing conditions seen in Western Europe during the late 17th century, the scientists announced at the 2015 National Astronomy Meeting. During that time, now known as the Little Ice Age, the Thames River in the United Kingdom froze over for several weeks, which it hasn't done since. Scientists still debate what caused the past cooling; possible explanations include a reduction in sunspots or the eruption of four tropical volcanoes that spewed ash and dust into the atmosphere.

Ah yes, ‘global warming’

Good thing that Greta the grifter is suing the Swedish government now before it gets cold again

Still falls neatly into the term "climate change"

Where’s my hovercraft?

Popular Science magazine said I’d have one by now.

WaIt, wait, wait……


You mean to tell me that the big burning ball of gas at the center of our solar system has more control over the earth’s weather than the vehicle I choose to drive?

Scientist that make these predictions have gotten away from science. Science is now an art, often driven by politics.

Quick…up the production of greenhouse gases. Crank up the coal-fired power plants!

re: 15 years until we reach a mini ice age
I've been reading about the French and Indian wars starting late 1700's. George Washington had his early employment in western Pennsylvania and environs, and in October of one year had a problem crossing rivers because of the ice flows. When he and Gist waited a few days, the river froze solid and they walked across.

This was not December or even November. To freeze a river in October...

I’m old enough I don’t even have to read a history book to remember it being so cold that the North Sea froze for over a mile offshore in 1963:

I discovered yesterday that when you google a country, any country, the first bit of information that pops up is the C02 emissions per capita

Go try it yourself and see
